Cardiac Surgery


Dr. Sciortino specializes in adult cardiac surgical procedures including coronary artery bypass; valve, aortic and arrhythmia surgeries; and minimally invasive surgery. He has a special interest in treating women as well as patients with high risk co-morbidities such as heart failure, diabetes and obesity. As a member of the heart failure team, he will have an active role in heart transplant, VAD implantation and mechanical support.

He strongly believes in patient and family-centered care and the importance of including patients and their family members in decisions regarding medical care and rehabilitation. Among Dr. Sciortino’s clinical research interests are minimizing postoperative infections and complications, particularly with high-risk patients. He is also interested in studying heart failure outcomes after cardiac surgery.
